um ... where to begin ... ok, yes, i know how to USE ftp, i just don't know the procedure or address for uploading TO the internet archive.

there used to be a page, i'd fill it out with info on the show, it would prepare a directory for me to upload and then tell me it, i would connect using COMMAND LINE ftp and upload the files, then when finished i would go back and fill out the rest of the data pertaining to the show.

currently, i cannot find the "ftp upload" pages that offer this path for uploading files, and all i see is "you must use HTTP", which, quite simply, will not work for me.

i hope that is a little clearer.

we no longer support ftp. at this time either the flash uploader at archive.org/create or the html5 uploader at archive.org/upload (using most modern browsers EXCEPT IE) are the available uploaders.

why will neither of those work for you?

thanks for the reply.

i am uploading to the etree part of the archive, i don't see how to do that with the HTML5 uploader, it doesn't show the Live Music Archive as a selectable collection.

also, when i drop files onto the HTML5 uploader, the page that results shows little red x's by all my files and i can't seem to upload them.

i try to use the flash uploader, and it warns me about problems with the unix platform, and then says to enter the show info and click 'share files'. i do this but when i get to the input page, it says i'm using unix so i must upload each file one at a time. As i explained in my original post, i have about 100 shows to upload and i am not going to sit there and click "add", wait for it to upload, then click "add" again -- repeat over 1000 times -- not gonna do that.

so, there is no automated way to upload, there is only HTML 1-file-at-a-time.

as i explained in my previous posts, i used to be able to use command line ftp and queue up 5 to 10 shows at a time, this was manageable. Fiddling around with poorly-designed and uncompatible webpages is not.

so, back to my original question in my original post: is there no longer a way to upload many shows in an efficient manner using the linux platform??

it sounds like the answer is no. which is unfortunate because i've been taping alot of good local and national bands that want me to upload their shows to the archive.

Jeff, could you please send me the same info? I'm a unix guy too, and I used FTP for years. When I use the HTML widget I get problems where I upload incomplete files, but my screen indicates it uploaded successfully. On FTP, I would verify the file size matched on both ends before checking in. Incomplete files get checksum mismatches, and the whole thing log jams.
Thanks, Joe

Were the programmers who removed FTP capability volunteers or were they employees of archive.org?
